Share Joy Challenge #26

Hello, hello!

Today is a new Share Joy Challenge, and I bring you my card using the sketch. I thought the Easter egg basket was lovely, but was inspired by the sketch to break out these adorable fishies from the Oceans of Fun stamp set. 

I started by die cutting my panel of card stock with the Medium Scallop die. I then used some Distress Inks to blend in a few blue hues to create my "waves." I also flicked on a bit of white paint for some interest. Once that was dry, I adhered the panel and the waves to a piece of copy paper, and ran a circle die through. I then reinserted it, and stamped my sentiment, popping up the whole panel onto fun foam, and a white card base.

I stamped the fish, and colored them in with Copic Markers, die cut them out, and adhered them around the circle!

I hope you take on the challenge! It is always fabulous to see your lovely cards in the gallery. Thanks for stopping by!
